1.Energy Dissipation During Impact of an Agglomerate Composed of Autoadhesive Elastic-Plastic Particles

Author:Liu, LF;Thornton, C;Shaw, SJ

Source:PROCEEDINGS OF THE 7TH INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ON DISCRETE ELEMENT METHODS,2017,Vol.188

Abstract:Discrete Element Method is used to simulate the impact of agglomerates consisting of autoadhesive, elastic-plastic primary particles. In order to explain the phenomenon that the elastic agglomerate fractures but the elastic-plastic agglomerate disintegrates adjacent to the impact site for the same impact velocity, we increase the impact velocity and lower the yield strength of the constituent particles of the agglomerate. We find that increasing the impact velocity can lead to the increased number of yielded contacts, and cause the elastic-plastic agglomerate to disintegrate faster. Mostly importantly, the energy dissipation process for the elastic-plastic agglomerate impact has been investigated together with the evolutions of the yielding contacts, and evolutions of velocity during impact.

Author:Gresnigt, NG

Source:XXIV INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ON INTEGRABLE SYSTEMS AND QUANTUM SYMMETRIES (ISQS-24),2017,Vol.804

Abstract:The quantum group SUq(3) = Uq(su(3)) is taken as a baryon flavor symmetry and exceptionally accurate octet and decuplet baryons mass relations are obtained by accounting for the electromagnetic contribution to baryon masses (to zeroth order). The resulting charge specific q-deformed octet and decuplet baryon mass sum formulas are accurate to 0.02%% and 0.08%% respectively; a factor of 20 reduction in error compared to the standard Gell-Mann-Okubo mass formulas. An explicit formula for the Cabibbo angle, taken to be pi/14, in terms of the deformation parameter q and spin parity J(P) of the baryons is obtained.

Abstract:Current authentication systems in mobile devices such as smart phones have many shortcomings. Users tend to use simple textual passwords such as PINs, which are easily cracked by intruders. Meanwhile, graphical passwords suffer from shoulder surfing attack In this paper, a new authentication system using 3D graphical passwords, will be proposed and tested to offer more security for mobile devices. This authentication system allows users to interact with the 3D objects in a 3D virtual environment and these actions are tracked in the virtual environment and used to create unique passwords. Based on the previous studies of the 3D password scheme, this paper developed a simple testing program that enables users to create their own 3D password easily. At the end of the paper, some improvements of the program and this authentication system are discussed.

7.Impact of Parasitic Elements on RF Performance of Nanometre-Scale MOSFET Structures

Author:Lam, S

Source:2013 IEEE INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE OF ELECTRON DEVICES AND SOLID-STATE CIRCUITS (EDSSC),2013,Vol.

Abstract:A recently reported nanometre-scaled MOSFET structure with regrown source and drain is examined. The parasitic circuit elements are identified and quantitatively determined to estimate their impact on the transistor's RF performance. Due to the relatively large lateral parasitic capacitances from the gate electrode to the regrown source and drain regions, the current gain cut-off frequency f(T) of such a transistor is optimistically estimated to be 184 GHz which is not impressive for nanoelectronic devices with an effective gate length of 30 nm. However, with the significantly reduced parasitic series resistances due to the regrown source and drain structures together with the use of the metal gate, the maximum frequency of oscillation f(max) can attain to 820 GHz. This brings about an implication that device structure optimization to reduce the parasitic resistances has a dominant beneficial effect on the RF performance over the negative impact caused by the increased parasitic capacitances.

9.A multi-objective optimization model for bike-sharing    

Author:Shan, Yu ; Xie, Dejun ; Zhang, Rui

Source:ACM International Conference Proceeding Series,2019,Vol.

Abstract:The study proposes a multi-objective optimization model for bike-sharing industry by monitoring, with high accuracy, the user demand and providing the suitable number of bikes at selected stations. One of the key factors for designing an optimized bike sharing system is to balance the demand of pick-ups (drop-offs) around a given station and the number of available bikes (vacant lockers) in the station throughout the day. The model optimizes the location of bicycle stations and the number of parking slots that each station should have by taking account of the main contributing factors including the total budget of the bike sharing system, the popularity of riding in the city, and the expected proximity of the stations. A case study using the bike-sharing in New York was conducted to test theeffectiveness of themodel. © 2019 Association for Computing Machinery.

Author:Xu, M;Jia, TY;Lu, L;Smith, JS

Source:PROCEEDINGS 2012 IEEE INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ON SYSTEMS, MAN, AND CYBERNETICS (SMC),2012,Vol.

Abstract:In this paper an object detection algorithm is proposed, which is robust in the presence of cast shadows and is based on geometric projections. The novelty of the work lies in the use of homology mapping of the foreground regions between different parallel planes within a monocular view, unlike some existing algorithms which depend on the use of multiple cameras. The results on an open video dataset are provided.

11.Fabricated Pictures Detection with Graph Matching

Author:Shen,Binrui;Niu,Qiang;Zhu,Shengxin

Source:ACM International Conference Proceeding Series,2020,Vol.

Abstract:Fabricating experimental pictures in research work is a serious academic misconduct, which should better be detected in the reviewing process. However, due to large number of submissions, the detection whether a picture is fabricated or reused is laborious for reviewers, and sometimes is unrecognizable with human eyes. A tool for detecting similarity between images may help to alleviate this problem. Some methods based on local feature points matching work for most of the time, while these methods may result in mess of matchings due to ignorance of global relationship between features. We present a framework to detect similar, or perhaps fabricated, pictures with the graph matching techniques. A new iterative method is proposed, and experiments show that such a graph matching technique is better than the methods based only on local features for some cases.

12.ASSESSMENT OF PEDAGOGIES

Author:Stankovic, N

Source:4TH INTERNATIONAL TECHNOLOGY, EDUCATION AND DEVELOPMENT CONFERENCE (INTED 2010),2010,Vol.

Abstract:We report on our experience with two pedagogies over a two year period, using one approach in each academic year, but the learning outcome remained the same. The first approach, in the first year, was backed up by Ian Sommerville's textbook, and the second by Bruegge and Dutoit's. The students came from three different curricula, and the class size in the second year was three times that in the first year. The difference in the outcome and in the meeting of the learning outcome has been strongly in favour of the second pedagogy. In this paper we compare the outcomes, provide a number of examples that explain the issues that the students had to deal with, and how the change in the pedagogy has improved the quality of the laboratory work without changing the project framework itself.

Source:2015 IEEE INTERNATIONAL SYMPOSIUM ON ANTENNAS AND PROPAGATION & USNC/URSI NATIONAL RADIO SCIENCE MEETING,2015,Vol.2015-October

Abstract:Two competing 8-wavelength-radius 2-layer lens designs were identified in the literature. Both were analyzed by ray tracing and full wave simulation, as an initial step toward production by additive manufacturing for use at mm-wave frequencies. The conclusion of this initial study is that the relative permittivity 1.68 - 1.6 design appears to be best suited to production by laser sintering.

14.The effects of the bioanode on the microbial community and element profile in paddy soil

Author:Williamson, G;Chen, Z

Source:ENVIRONMENTAL ARSENIC IN A CHANGING WORLD (AS2018),2018,Vol.

Abstract:In paddy soil the reductive dissolution of iron oxide and the availability of organic matter plays an important role in arsenic release under anaerobic conditions. Microbial fuel cells have been shown to reduce organic matter (OM) content and the rate in which this occurs strongly relate to the external resistance applied. In this study we investigated the effects of bioanode operating at different external resistance on the paddy soil microbial community and iron and arsenic concentration. The results show that MFC can be used to reduce soil pore water iron and arsenic concentration and the extent in which this occurs depend on the external resistance applied. The MFC is able to mitigate arsenic release by decreasing organic matter availability. Furthermore, our finding shows that external resistance had a significant influence on the bacterial community composition that develop on the bioanode however only had minimal effect on the community of the bulk soil. These findings suggest that the sMFC can influence the iron and arsenic concentration by reducing OM content and the microbial community that develop in the bioanode vicinity.

Abstract:Due to high flexibility, reliability, and strong actuation forces, piezo fiber based composite smart material, macro-fiber composite (MFC), is increasingly applied in various fields for vibration suppression, shape control, and health monitoring. The complexity arrangement of MFC materials makes them difficult in numerical simulations. This paper develops a linear electro-mechanically coupled finite element (FE) model for composite laminated thin-walled smart structures bonded with MFC patches considering arbitrary piezo fiber orientation. Two types of MFCs are considered, namely, MFC-d31 in which the d(31) effect dominates the actuation forces, and MFC-d33 which mainly uses the d(33) effect. The proposed FE model is validated by static analysis of an MFC bonded smart plate.

Abstract:Key issues of indoor localization is taking full advantages and overcoming its disadvantages. indoor localization based on Wi-Fi fingerprinting attracts researchers' attentions since it does not require new infrastructure and devices. Many devices such as smart phones and laptops, which have a function to capture Wi-Fi signals, can be used for Wi-Fi fingerprinting. However, due to unreliable Wi-Fi signals, there are still difficulty to achieve high positioning accuracy. The unreliable signal disturbs devices to find their locations. As a result, getting localization with devices sometimes makes a wrong decision in building classification. It is useless for people to find a destination floor if they are in different building. In this paper, we propose two consecutive multi-layer perceptrons to get more precise localization. With sumple structure, we get better performance and show precise decision results in building classification, which is critical in Wi-Fi fingerprinting. We use UJIndoorLoc dataset which is open dataset.

17.AlGaN/GaN Metal-Insulator-Semiconductor (MIS)-HFETs Based DC-DC Boost Converters with Integrated Gate Drivers

Author:Cui, M;Bu, QL;Cai, YT;Sun, RZ;Liu, W;Wen, HQ;Lam, S;Liang, YC;Mitrovic, IZ;Taylor, S;Chalker, PR;Zhao, CZ

Source:2019 10TH INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ON POWER ELECTRONICS AND ECCE ASIA (ICPE 2019 - ECCE ASIA),2019,Vol.

Abstract:This study proposed a 100 kHz, 5V/11V boost converter with an integrated gate driver for a power switching device using recessed E-mode MIS-HFETs. The integrated gate driver consisting of multi-stages DCFL (Direct-Coupled FET Logic) inverters and a buffer stage, has large input swing (up to 10 V) and wide noise margin with gate dielectric, which benefits applications requiring large gate swing without any additional drivers or level shifters. The impact of transistor size on rise times and fall times have been studied. Either buffer stage or larger width of DCFL inverter can reduce rise times from 2.4 mu s to less than 0.5 mu s at 100 kHz, so the output voltage of boost converter is increased by 10 %% at a duty cycle of 0.7. However, large buffer width can result in high gate overshoot and oscillation, indicating careful design to balance switching speed and oscillation.

Source:CEIS 2011,2011,Vol.15

Abstract:NULL Conventional Logic (NCL) is a Delay-Insensitive (DI) clockless paradigm and is suitable for implementing asynchronous circuits. Efficient methods of analysis are required to specify and verify such DI systems. Based on Delay Insensitive sequential Process (DISP) specification, this paper demonstrates the application of formal methods by applying Process Analysis Toolkit (PAT) to model and verify the behavior of NCL circuits. A few useful constructs are successfully modeled and verified by using PAT. The flexibility and simplicity of the coding, simulation and verification shows that PAT is effective and applicable for NCL circuit design and verification. (C) 2011 Published by Elsevier Ltd.
